Red Chair Travels to Boreas Inn

August 8, 2015 by: Susan Goldsmith

Boreas Inn, ocean-front, in Long Beach, Washington first met Red when Laurie Anderson from the Shelburne Inn delivered her to our B&B on August 4th, 2015. It was late at night, Red looked tired, and so we tucked her into the dining room at the Inn right next to other chairs. Immediately comfortable, Red took up residence for a one-week stay with us. Guests and long-time friends from Canberra, Australia took a shine to her the next morning and asked if they could show her around. So they did. Being from Australia, they took Red to The Lost Roo, a well-known sports bar in Long Beach.
The Long Beach, Washington Peninsula is 28-miles long and often touted as the World’s Longest Beach.

It may be the USA’s longest continuous beach! In front of Boreas Inn is a fabulous 20-mile round-trip paved Discovery Trail, named after Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery. Boreas Inn sits right on the Lewis & Clark Trail. Red met Captain Lewis and the sturgeon, a bronze sculpture on the Discovery Trail.

Exhausted from all the travel, Red decided to take a snooze in the hammock in the back garden.

Exhausted from years of travel, Red took a rest in the hammock in the back garden at Boreas.
